Every Monday the Connect Group for professionals in the Gainesville, FL area who are looking for work meet. This week (2/22) the meeting will be held at Tioga Dental in the Tioga Town Center, Newberry - Jonesville.
The meeting will start at 6:00 pm and this week we will be conducting mock interviews.
Meetings normally last to 7:30 with time afterward to network and discuss with the Florida Works representatives the various programs available. Please dress in business attire and bring resumes, business cards, social security card and drivers license (these last two documents are required should you wish to sign up for further program assistance). This meeting is free for you to attend.
Connect creates opportunities through networking new and existing companies with our region’s talent. If you have an associates degree or higher, and/or five years or more of experience in an industry, have been laid off, this meeting is for you. Even if you are under employed this meeting can give you valuable insight into the programs you can utilize to stimulate your job search.
Our State of Florida has received many grants to help our unemployed get back to work. Florida Works has been charged with the responsibility of oversight and implementation.
We welcome all recruiters in the area to participate as well. Each month one meeting is set aside for you to speed interview our top available talent. This is a great way to maximum time and expense in the recruiting process.
